got an estimate today *advice desired*

from a small shop in town with a good reputation for speedy repairs and good prices, tell me what you guys think...

1) front bumper.. price: $235.. labor: 1.5.. paint 2.7.. clear coat: 1.1
2) repair radiator support.. labor: 4.0... paint 1.2
3) replace sight shield.. price: $16.70.. labor: 0.2
4) hood.. paint: 2.5.. clear coat: 1.0
5) blend right fender.. paint: 1.1
6) blend left fender.. paint 1.1
7) cut in hood.. labor: 2.0
8) hazardous waste disposal.. price: $10.00
9) car cover/ mask for overspray: $5.00
10) corrosion protection: $5.00

subtotals... price: $271 ... labor: 7.7 hours ... paint: 10.7 hours

parts: $251.70
body labor = 7.7 hours @ $36/hr = $277.20
paint labor = 10.7 hours @ $36/hr = $385.20
paint supplies = 10.7 hours @ $26/hr = $278.20
misc = $20

SUBTOTAL: $1212.30

sales tax: $118.20

GRAND TOTAL: $1330.50 + $350 (cobra hood)

...........................................

he said he doesn't know if the bumper bar is bent without having the bumper off, so that might need to be done too. and if i get an aftermarket bumper, that will be extra also... but since this is a small body shop, they're willing to let a little of the price fall off to keep business

they really do have a good rep, i was referred there like 6 times. everyone that referred me said that the actual time in the shop is usually only 1/2 to 3/4 of the time they say on the estimate. one guy said he got his car back the next day

what do you guys think? 1100 - 1500 reasonable for the damage?

i'm gonna get 2 more estimates from different places and see how they compare
